Weighing in rough seas? Challenge accepted.

When we brought accurate data collection to the fishing grounds with the first motion-compensating marine scales forty years ago, we tipped the scales towards increased efficiency throughout the value-chain.

Data-driven from day one

Marel’s marine scales brought data collection to the fishing grounds. Forty years later, this data shows a surge in yield per fish fillet from 58% to 83%. Using decades of precise data, we’ve continuously developed solutions that ensure quality food at the lowest cost – to businesses and to the environment.

That's the power in numbers.

Marel’s electronic marine scales accurately weighed fish at sea. More significantly, they collected data.  Keep in mind that this was long before the advent of the Internet. Our founders displayed incredible foresight, and that has been the basis of Marel’s operations and business model ever since
